Prof. Martin Müser has been Professor of Materials Simulation at Saarland University since 2009. After his diploma in experimental physics, he received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz in 1995. Postdoctoral stays took him to Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, and Columbia University, New York, (both USA) before he joined the University of Mainz in 2002. In the same year, he accepted a professorship at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. From 2011-2016, he led a research group on computational materials physics at Forschungszentrum Jülich.
His simulation and experimental work explores issues in Nanotribology, Materials under extreme pressure and Optoelectronic materials.
He received the Young Innovator Award of Petro Canada and the Premier’s Research Excellence Award of the Department of Energy of the state of Ontario.
